Tryptophan (Trp) is an essential amino acid in humans, and in plants, it plays a major role in the regulation of plant development and defence responses. However, little is known about Trp-mediated cadmium (Cd) tolerance. Gene expression analysis showed that Arabidopsis thaliana tryptophan synthase beta 1 (AtTSB1) is up-regulated in plants treated with Cd;(More)
Plant defensins (PDFs) are cysteine-rich peptides that have a range of biological functions, including defence against fungal pathogens. However, little is known about their role in defence against bacteria. In this study, we showed that the protein encoded by ARABIDOPSIS THALIANA PLANT DEFENSIN TYPE 1.1 (AtPDF1.1) is a secreted protein that can chelate(More)
